I, too, agree with Rhino's ability. They've more than proven themselves over the last decade--and the box sets are great. I wonder what the deal was that they struck (none of my business, of course). What I meant by poison pill is that digitizing the vault--if that is the goal--is not going to be cheap. Factor in remixing, cleaning up--which they were doing at a snail's pace--and you've got a mighty investment. So, if you don't want to spend 20-25 bucks (understandable), is it worth their while to finally do the whole vault? I think not. Especially since neither you nor I would download the whole thing (even when the milk was free here on archive, I didn't overindulge). So my question is mainly about digitizing all those shows that have not been dealt with.

I hope that the minds at Rhino can figure this one out better than a bunch of fans in the bleechers can (myself included). I believe they have a plan or they wouldn't have touched the deal--whatever it is.

And I wish them luck not cynically, but because I would love to see it work.

I wonder if being in the midst of all that treasure was too much for him.

What a guy--I don't care how humble he was, he was the engine that powered the car.

Latvala! indeed!

i met him once on 4/9/99 at the Fillmore, It was an event called the Spring Dang Doodle, It was a Dicks Picks 11(i think)preview party. Dick seemed a real cool person. He held court upstairs with a big line of people to talk to him. A friend of mine wanted me to ask about his favorite show he was at on 5/26/73 Kezar. Dick more or less flamed the show as being one of the worst that year-the dude was opinionated to be sure, but he could back it up. I think he loved the vault job alot
